As you build your faith, you block out the spirit of fear. Fear and faith do not mix, they are complete opposites. So, if you'll take just one thing away from my message today, let it be this, God has not given you a spirit of fear, he has given you a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. Deuteronomy 31:8 says
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
Everything God has for us is contained in these simple words. I will never leave you. Whatever you need from the Lord, he will supply it because he will never leave you. If you feel inadequate. That's good, because you will depend even more on the Lord. God never starts anything. He does not finish. Ephesians chapter 3, verse, 16 to 17 says.
that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner self, 17so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
Jesus Christ will only dwell in your heart when there is faith, faith dispels, fear, faith, calms, a troubled heart faith is the cure for a troubled heart. God's word tells us not to let our hearts be troubled. It's telling us to have faith have faith that Jesus Christ will save you and rescue you from anything. You could face in this life.
Psalm 50 verse 15 says
Call upon Me on the day of trouble; I will rescue you, and you will honor Me.”
God wants you to call him. He says trust me in your times of trouble and I will rescue you. I am sure that each of us, as we've gone through certain things in life, has faced various storms and difficulties in life.
We have all gotten to the point where we start asking God questions. Questions like. "Why is this happening to me", or perhaps you've asked a question like "God, how will the situation work out for my good?" Romans, 8:28 says,
The thing about us as humans is that we always want to know all of the details. We want to know how God will make a way where there seems to be no way. We want to know how exactly God operates and why he allows certain things to happen now. Should you find yourself in a storm of difficulty, may I remind you that Psalm 34:19 says
The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all;
However, as humans, we always want to know the details. How exactly will the Lord deliver us? However, I would like to encourage you and tell you that God is sovereign, meaning that he possesses supreme and ultimate power and because the Lord possesses all authority all power and knowledge. This means that our part is not to question God. We are not to demand answers or feel as though we're on the same level with God that he has to explain himself.
